“My work is inspired by the intimacy of handling small personal artifacts and giving them new life in jewelry.”
Debra’s work is inspired by the natural and architectural world that surrounds her. The forms she creates are cast of sterling silver, then textured and individually inlaid with an array of materials. Debra’s jewelry features pearls, sand, seed beads and dichoric glass. These items are composed into uniquely colorful arrangements and embedded in a matrix of black polymer.
